I don't like taking my hands off my gamepad to select a ship between respawns. It took me a while to realize I could just hit a button without having to move around with the arrows first, because when you move with an arrow you get a dashed rectangle outline on the selected ship. That outline should appear on the selected one before moving with the arrows to make it more obvious.


(I'm on OS X 10.12.6, if the selection ring is OS-dependent.)


With mouse select there is a blue highlight which is fairly obvious because it tracks around as an on-hover effect under the cursor. If there is such a highlight for the game pad selection I can't tell. If it isn't there, maybe add it. If it is there, maybe make it more obvious?

We are reworking the user interface for the full release and making sure gamepad works more smoothly in the menus is one of our goals.
